    the waiting game.

    For an interview at a bike shop, I'd probably also bring a shirt to change into in case they ask you to do a bit of work to show you know what you're doing.
    Maybe I'm weird, but I would roll in with normal attire. I work as an auto body tech and if you rolled into a shop asking for a job in a suit and tie, you would be laughed out of the place.

    As someone going for a job to be an apprentice, only thing that really matters is enthusiasm/passion and well, it seems silly to drive to a bike mechanic interview.

    I bought a cheap rice steamer to use in the truck. It works quick and well. The only problem is that it has a little vent hole in the lid that spits all over the place. It turned out to be too much mess and trouble in the truck......back to the microwave.

    or Assos. My business partner raves about them, though I've yet to try them. We just ordered our club kit from Capo. The stuff they sent us to try out looked and felt awesome, though I'm ignorant to their long-term durability.

    yea, seems like a lot of people compare rapha to assos as the two top of the line bibz.

    how does the capo feel compare to rapha? capo is $100 cheaper, which is a lot easier a price tag to swallow.

    i really like the bibs that are falling apart, and i'm hoping i can just get them repaired... but i think it's time for a second pair of good bibs for the rotation anyhow. however, i do want a pair of nice bibs that'll last... not a pair of nice bibs that derp it up after 6 months.

    My old club used to get their kits from Squadra, which was absolutely awful. One year the used this glued on chamois w/o any stitching, and it immediately separated from the spandex, so we found ourselves wearing them over separate liners. They finally changed over to LG, which my current club uses and we like a lot. The only problem with LG is that they run small, so if you normally take a medium, then you have to get a large size.

    I have a few capo bibs, they're older but they seem to be holding up well...getting some wear in the seat, but thats to be expected. The chamois is still fine tho.

    I also recently got some twinsix bibs which I compare to capo, they seem really nice too but don't know about long term.

    I have no experience with Assos or Rapha yet, hopefully will get a few pairs soon. I know Assos is on the clymb on occasion at a discount.

    Round 2 of sanding and got another one for the fork and detail work on the frame. My fingers are sore and I now know that for any future frames I intend on painting will be sandblasted.



    And here is what is used to look like. It was kinda cool like that but I couldn't see putting a bunch of new parts on to leave it like that.

    Capo runs slightly larger than other bibs I've tried. Which is odd since it's typically known that Italian = small in the apparel department. I wear a M Rapha bib, but opted for small bibs from Capo.

    The chamois felt good. It was dense without being bulky. We got the compression-style shorts and they feel well... compressiony. Really hard to tell how good they will be until I get on a bike with them. We just had a run of sizes sent to us for our members to try on prior to submitting our order (which we just did today!).

    I'll let you know how they are in approx 6-8 weeks

    i dont think a poll in how often kit laundry is done would make any of us look particularly sanitary, cuz im in the same boat

    Yeah srsly. Is this not common? My bibs get one use before a wash. I can count on one hand the number of times I've done two rides before a wash and it's usually because I forgot on an extra pair on a trip or something.

    At the very least rinse them (specifically the chamois) with hot water in the sink and hang dry...

    Yeah, me too. No excuse once they replaced real leather chamois with the synthetic stuff, that dries in a few hours. I do still have an old pair of wool shorts with leather chamois that I wear when riding one of my vintage bikes to feel authentic.
